GCP Network Security
Doesn’t Have to Be Complicated

Across every industry, organizations are now taking a “cloud-first” approach to drive greater business agility and competitive business advantage. Google Cloud Platform (GCP) is one of the most common cloud infrastructure and services platforms for public cloud workloads and cloud-first organizations. While GCP has many security services and constructs, just like every other cloud service provider, there are numerous nuances that your teams must learn. GCP also lacks advanced security that’s required to mitigate exploit attacks or to achieve compliance with key regulations. Valtix delivers a suite of network security capabilities for GCP, including egress filtering, next-gen firewall (NGFW), web application firewall (WAF), IDS/IPS, microsegmentation, and DLP.

Network security for GCP not only matters, it’s essential. Customized security in each app isn’t always possible, isn’t always consistent, and isn’t always cost-effective. The network is the common ground across every hosted application. At Valtix, we deliver security for Google Cloud Platform that is cloud-native and works to protect infrastructure and workloads. Valtix is unlike virtual appliances, which forgo many of the benefits of the cloud and require the customer to do most of the heavy lifting of scale and deployment management. Versus GCP native security, Valtix provides a more robust cloud firewall solution for GCP capable of meeting stringent compliance requirements. We provide a consolidated cloud network security platform for ingress, egress, east-west, and hybrid cloud scenarios – thus minimizing the need to manage many separate services.

“When evaluating solutions for our next-gen cloud architecture, we considered many alternatives. We prioritized having advanced security, which meant the native netsec capabilities didn’t suffice. We also evaluated our on-prem netsec vendor’s appliances. Valtix gave us the perfect blend of comprehensive capability and simplicity to operate as we scale.”

Cloud-first, Robust, and High-Performance Security for GCP

Valtix offers a born-in-the-cloud platform to protect your GCP workloads. Similar to cloud load balancers, our solution uses a controller offered as a service with Valtix managed gateways that sit in your GCP account to provide visibility and enforcement of security policy.

Prevent Exploit Attempts With Intrusion Prevention and Firewall

Leverage auto-updating policy within Intrusion Prevention (IPS) or Web Application Firewall (WAF) to proactively protect GCP app workloads against attacks based on known exploits or to mitigate attempts that follow malicious patterns.

Filter Egress Traffic to Stop Exfiltration

Apply policy to stop outbound traffic from GCP based on whitelist, blacklist, or known bad categories of fully qualified domain (FQDN). Detect sensitive data through DLP and proactively block traffic.

Adapts Effortlessly to Changes in GCP

Our security platform ties together continuous visibility and control to discover new cloud assets and changes, associate tag-based business context (from cloud provider), and automatically apply the appropriate policy to ensure security compliance – adapting to new apps in 30 seconds. We call this Dynamic Multi-Cloud Policy (™).

Best-in-class GCP Throughput and Performance

For advanced GCP security, Valtix Single-pass Pipeline (™), enables up to 10x throughput improvement over other solutions when inspecting encrypted traffic.

Integrates with Infrastructure as Code (IAC) and Terraform

Integrate with Terraform to auto-scale, auto-deploy security based on pre-defined policy in Google Cloud Platform.

Reduce Point Solutions

The Valtix platform addresses a number of GCP security use cases including asset discovery (applications, DNS logs, VPC logs), network-based security (next-generation firewall, IDS/IPS, DLP, FQDN/URL Filtering), web application security (cloud web application firewall (WAF), API Rate Limiting, URL Filtering), microsegmentation for GCP, and integration of security events into SIEMs such as Splunk.
